Ice Ismail Erbil Fashion Designers CV

Ice (Ismail) Erbil is a fashion designer with his own brand Ice Ismail Erbil and is based in London working with draping, illustration and fashion design as his major.  He is Turkish-born and raised in both Germany and London Ice has worked in fashion design in the category of education at London College of Fashion Short Courses where he has specialised in Research, Design and Draping. He holds a BA from Central Saint Martins and diplomas from London College of Fashion and has worked for up and coming designers in London and a established brand Easton Pearson in Australia. 

Ice (Ismail) Erbil showed his debut collection in New York in 2008 and has worked as a fashion tutor internationally at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane where he also shadowed and was mentored by the course leader Suzi Vaughan on their degree course for first, second and final year graduating students who have become international brand owners.  He has also tutored at Northbrook College in West Sussex and Southampton Solent University in Southampton (UK).

Ice’s design studio practices are to work with intricate design details for classic draping fields where he draws inspiration from new techniques in luxury sportswear.  He is based in East London and explores new art and fashion directions within his practice including innovative pattern cutting, collage, sculpture and textiles.  

Current areas of interest are titled ‘Space Travel’ and ‘Our Giant Sea’ by the artist and also he references historical fashion designers and their influence on future identities.  Discovering drapery and using a visual language extending into ideas surrounding ‘bones, flowers and UFO’s’ allows Ice to approach the ‘everyday’ from his own unique perspective. 

Within his art practice he is also currently presenting ‘beyond duality’ as draping towards new menswear collection with his collaborative art partner under the collaborative name ‘Beyond Duality’.

His directional visions begins in the areas of surrealism, fabric manipulation and transformative clothing that constitute some of the main ingredients of his image-making both as an artist and a fashion designer.
